SA Racing re-cap from Globe Derby Park Saturday 1st July 23

Racing Recap GLOBE DERBY Sat July 1
Race 1: ATOUT was able to control this event after a brilliant start from the stands for Ryan Hryhorec who was in his element piloting the Luke O’Neil trained mare, who has been a model of consistency this season.
Race 2: The longshot win of the night belonged to BOSS MAJOR and Wayne Hill / Nick Tardio thanks to a beautiful run through the sprint lane after tagging the helmet of odds-on Barney Fella in transit. Only 4.8m covered the first four home in this NR up to 51 affair.
Race 3: The intent shown from Sam Pascoe outside the front row ultimately lead to victory on MISCHIEVOUS MAGGIE who set the field alight early. From that point on she was able to control the race tempo with a first half of 63.7 which allowed her to zip home in 58.6. Port Pirie SA Country Cup winning trainer Heather Stevens is also a part-owner and co-breeder of this mare.
Race 4: The Gina Bell trained and driven SPY MAJOR showed again he is as tough as nails
sitting outside race leader and favourite Assassinator to secure back-back victories. This fellow won twice last year at Gloucester Park over 2536m, could he be a contender for the $60,000 SA Cup in October? Only 5.2m covered the first seven home here in a field of eight.
Race 5: Wayne Hill brought up a double for the night on BLING IT UP once again using the services of the sprint lane to bring up a hat trick of wins for trainer Leah Holman. This four year-old has proven to be a shrewd acquisition to the SA ranks and any queries over his ability to see out the 2230m were alleviated last night, recording a sharp 1:57.8 MR to win by a head from race favourite and leader Rakero Storm.
Race 6: Gaita Pullicino controlled this event from the outset and never looked like losing on WHATA OPTIMIST for trainer Luis Trotta who is enjoying a good strike rate this season. Late closers Machstique and Lenny Tee flagged their respective cases for punters to follow next time out. Five year-old gelding Whata Optimist is by Rock N Roll Heaven out of a Bettors Delight mare.
Race 7: In what was a competitive betting race with five runners at $5.50 or under, it was MILLYS MAGIC for Claire Goble and David Smith who showed the best turn of foot in a steadily run affair for this grade of trotters, playing into the winner’s hands. With Millys Magic likely to receive a penalty for this win, the fast class trot next time out promises to be a fascinating affair.
Race 8: Punters backed Dina Mo into prohibitive odds of $1.22 in the lucky last, but it was the Shane Loone trained and Corey Johnson driven VICTORY MEDAL that caused an upset and scored the narrowest of victories, his first for 17 starts. In a small field of six the exacta with fellow long shot Bettor Be Lively paid a whopping $566 on Super Tab, with the trifecta dividend a lazy $4,013.30.
